Why create a LinkedIn profile for companies

Within this Kingdom many companies do not have a LinkedIn page while others use personal account profiles instead of creating a company page, inserting a logo instead of the profile photo and the company name instead of the first and last name, errors also present in the management of Facebook or Instagram pages.

Avoiding to include Linkedin in your digital strategy is like forgetting a fundamental piece of your ship: anchor, rudder, ropes, sails and much more!

For B2B companies in particular, having a LinkedIn page is essential because buyers, the purchasing managers of B2B companies, are on LinkedIn and they look for other companies to source from.

In fact, while on Facebook you will address directly the final customer, on LinkedIn you can address those who can buy your product as a raw material, those who are interested in reselling it and much more.

In short, it’s like a portal where the bravest captains can look for an opportunity but also compare themselves with each other, presenting to users adventures and services they are dealing with.

I’ll give you an example, if your company makes sails for ships:

  • on Linkedin you’ll be targeting mainly shipwrights, shipbuilders;
  • on Facebook you will address the private individual who will go to a dealer to buy your sails directly.

If, finally, you’re still not convinced of its importance and difference from other Social I have for you two good reasons to create a company LinkedIn profile.

  • Lead Generation – As we have already mentioned, it is a great place to reach out to potential customers;
  • Recruiting – allows you to attract top talent, who will want to learn about the company and its ideals from the company profile.

Some tips for a business Linkedin profile

First, let me remind you that every channel is different and has a different audience. In some cases it is advisable to be present in more than one channel, while in others it will be advisable to choose which one is more useful.

Think about going around the world, which ship would you prefer to use: a frigate or a galleon?

Therefore, you can use Linkedin to talk about materials, supply chain, environmental sustainability, product certifications, or everything that interests the consumer in the production process as a further lever to purchase, while on Instagram you will focus on the aesthetic side, design and much more.

However, the page does not serve to disseminate only content related to your product but can be designed to attract new potential customers also through content of interest related to your business.

Before writing any content, however, I recommend that you make a editorial plan, choose a tone of voice and find a typology of content you’re going to want to deal with.
